coughing on the man next to me

i said I had allergies when i knew it was probably a lie
but i'm not sure so i hope for the best
he still cringed as i munched on cataloupe and scratched my throat.
he doesn't believe me as i go through a packet of kleenex
only to leave half way through talks so i can cough
in the corridor until the spasms eventually subside
the talk was dull anyway and my coughing gave me
an excuse to get away from his incessant keyboard tapping;
does he really have to write code during the whole conference.
yes i coughed on him, i'm sure and maybe he will fall ill
and he won't be able to code after all.
